Merging Two Worlds (M2W) is a life skills/transition-based curriculum developed by The Arizona Department of Education’s Secure Care Education Committee specifically for secure-care populations. The M2W curriculum is based on the concept that resiliency (the ability to come back from and successfully adapt to adversity) is critical to an individual’s successful reintegration into the community. The M2W curriculum is divided into chapters, each aligned with the concept of resiliency. The M2W curriculum is designed to be flexible and may be enhanced with or supplemented by content-specific lessons or additional life skills and transition materials that the teacher already uses. Several different versions of the curriculum are available.
